Smells nice dry good for chickens
I've bought large and small pine shavings, and I definitely prefer the smaller pine shavings. Some people complain that chicks will eat the small pine shavings, but I haven't really had that problem. If you have small pine shavings in the coop, it will stay dry, and it's easy to clean out with a kitty litter scooper. As the bedding breaks downs, as long as it's dry, you can just add more shavings. Other may swear by hay or sand, but I'm pine all the way. .
